- Lower GI surgery
I have been a Consultant General and Colorectal surgeon in Eastbourne for 15 years. I have a specialist interest in colorectal cancer as well as benign colorectal disease (inflammatory bowel disease, rectal prolapse, haemorrhoids and anal fistula) and have a large practice in this area. My cancer resection outcomes compare very favourably with the best in the country. I am one of the most experienced endoscopists in the region and an accredited trainer.
My general surgery interests include hernia surgery, skin lesions and laparoscopic gall bladder surgery.
